The exact details of the meeting of Graham Sedam and Tim Kress are so obscured in rhetoric as to be impossible to reconcile what is truth and what's fiction.  One thing that can be known for sure is that they met in the middle of what's become known as the Late-To-Early-Middle-Dark-Ages (the 1990's), in a garage in Middle America.  At that first meeting, defying all odds, they didn't play a single Nirvana song.  In fact, they didn't play any music at all.  When asked about that day, Tim remembers a guy there that spoke Spanish only, even though he was of Belgian decent.  Graham remembers all the blood.

    They formed a band with a few other misinformed disaffected angst ridden youths.  Mostly they played Metallica songs.  Remember the chocolate orange juice, the Beastie Billies?  Hiding under the train table?  They don't either.

    Fast forward a decade- a time spent away from each other, for the most part. A time spent making babies (Tim), music, arts, and going to school (Graham, now living 374 miles away, in a different Middle American town).

    Here you'll find Tim in a spectacularly amazing band that took too much time away from his wife and kids, and Graham working on his solo project, Mess of it ALL.  Inspired by shifty drum machines, over-priced synthesizers, distortion, boredom, and high-speed Internet, they decided to form a band, Diads.  Tim would supply most of the beats, sequencing, guitars, basses, and other things.  Graham would supply his highly superior skills as an engineer, and his haunting, strangely vulnerable vocals.  Over the next year, they wrote and recorded a starkly cinematic electronic album, entitled, Make You Dirty.

    Some years after the release of Make You Dirty, Tim had written and recorded many songs in his tiny pink studio, and was at the end of his wits musically. Buried deep within him was the urge to write down a story that had haunted him for the last fifteen years of his life. So over the next two years, he wrote a novel called Early Mourning.

    Even as Tim was mangling his fingertips to bloody pulps banging out his story, Graham was reading Tim's words as fast as he could write them, and doing some writing of his own. The two of them had decided that their next album would be the soundtrack to Tim's novel, Early Mourning. Inspired by Tim's words, Graham in turn inspired Tim to take directions he'd otherwise not take in his book with the lyrics he wrote. It was a symbiotic writing excursion strange and yet as natural as lightning sprites.

Diads' second album is called, Early Mourning, a soundtrack to the novel by the same name.

Graham's favorite color is dead.  He is jealous of his solitude.

Tim likes to hate the technology that makes it possible to do everything he does.
His favorite thing is brown.
